Rainbow Order Holiday Happiness ♥

Hi there! I have another Mermaid Christmas card today. I just love all of the colors on this one!

I'm excited to enter this card in this month's Little Tangles challenge!

I stamped all of the images on Neenah with black Memento ink and colored them with Copic markers before I fussy cut them out. I added some fun wink of stella shimmer to the fish and the mermaid's tail and then I had a bit of a conundrum. I really wanted the mermaid to be coming out of the water but I really didn't want to cover up her tail so I used some clear acetate with alcohol inks for the water and I love how it turned out! I stenciled some clouds for the background, added a sentiment, and then glued everything down. I hid my adhesive on the water under her hair and under the baker's twine.

We are officially not decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving here, but the girls and I seem to keep buying Christmas stuff everytime we go to Target (ahem. every day...) and then it seems like a shame to bring it home only to shove it in the garage, so we have a bunch of fun Christmas singing decorations around the house mixed in with all of our autumn pumpkin decorations. I think I'm also ready to break down and get our Christmas books out of the garage, we have so many good ones and I could really use a distraction from The Nightmare Before Christmas book that Bree wants me to read every night :)

I'm still on my Christmas mermaid kick so I should have my Lawn Fawn Merry Mermaids ready sometime in the next few days! Have a great day!

  1. So funny, so clever! I really, really like it! Thanks for playing with LTCH:)

  2. I always love a rainbow of colours on a card and Christmas is no exception!! Fabulous idea to do an ocean theme and everything is coloured so beautifully, especially with the shimmery detail on the fish. I love everything about this card and I'm so glad you shared it with us this month at Little Tangles!!


Thanks for stopping by! Comments are, as always, much appreciated :)

Have a fabulous day!
